: ellen had her theory about why the president came off why he did. on msnbc, michael dison claimed in his opinion that the president was overly deferential to mitt romney because he was concerned that he would come across as an angry black man. michael moore, he blamed his effort on the coaching or the debate sparring that he got from john kerry. al gore, this is my favorite, being from denver he said that obama's poor performance could be blamed on denver's altitude. there you go. >> it's always the climate with al gore. >> he wasn't wearing enough earth tones. >> president obama has been to colorado so much even if that was the case, he had altitude sickness, he has adjusted. he has been campaigning more than he has been governing. >> big maher -- bill moore. said it was like michael jackson on tranquilizers. >> you know what andrew called it a disaster. >> i think he will do quite well in the next two debates so if he did quite fine off the cuff but he doesn't get the hard questions. >> four minutes more speaking time during than 90 minutes than mitt romney did and he made far fewer po
's mayor michael hancock. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> this is the only debate specifically geared to domestic issues. what based on your conversations with other mayors do these people want to hear from the candidates and they need to address tomorrow night? >> i think it's very important. i believe as we heard in the past, you're going to see and hear two fundamental differences as far as genders are concerned with regard to the american people. the american people want to hear about the issues that matter most to them. those are the issues around jobs, the economy, safety in america. their children and education. the things that really meet the american people where they are. that's why we are also here today and the next 30, 45 minutes where u.s. mayors will get together and talk about those very important issues, as well. >> unemployment in your state is above the national average, about 8.2% now. >> right. >> you criticized president obama during the convention for pressuring governor romney to release his tax returns, saying that wasn't the issue that mattered the mos

[ laughter ] >> we're both from philly. seriously, though, my argument is here -- you can say what you want, from this [ muted ] where we go and focus on the big issues that separate these two candidates. your thoughts, bob shrum? that first debate was toesed to be about domestic issues. none of those issues came up. i think in the next debate, in the town hall format, the president has to make sure they're front and center. it's about what's said day after day after day. >> right. i would add one issue to the list you gave. the president has to win this medicare issues. seniors are too critical a voting bloc to let romney tell the lie that $716 billion was tut from medicare benefits. >> do you agree with us, i think from a different perspective. this election is about big issues, not who is a better debater. >> i think it's to really -- for the people of the country or the people

, the campaign were required to accept the lead's moderators. four more years later and you have the michael this caucus and george bush campaign's drafting the first ever 12-page secret debate contract. they gave it to the league of women voters and said implement this. they said, are you kidding me? we are not going to implement a secret contract. instead, the release the contract to the public and accuse the candidates of perpetrating a fraud on the american people and refusing to be "and accessory to the hoodwinking of the american people." conveniently, a year earlier, the republican and democratic parties had ratified an agreement to take over the presidential debates, and they created this commission, which was waiting in the wings and step right in and implemented the very same 12-page contract that the league had denounced. ever since -- >> since the league of women voters least it at the time, what was in the contract? >> the contract then set provision that the candidates could not ask each other questions during the debates, no third party candidates would be allowed to participa

of the debate. in 1988, michael dukakis could have had help not looking so cold in his response. >> we have a professor at the george washington university, john sides. when you have those moments that reinforce, either good or for ill, to a candidate, how important or damaging can these be? >> candidate debates in a general election to not move the polls a lot. only in a close race. in general, i think these dramatic moments in debates are not necessarily game changes for the average american voter. >> you wrote, usually the candidates fight to a draw. it is hard in that context to have a stunning victory or a terrible defeat. can you elaborate? >> the candidates spend a lot of time trying to lower their expectations about the performance and portray the other person as this great orator. in reality, the candidates spend a lot of time prepping for the debates and they are very good at it. they have read a lot of material and memorize a lot of material. in that context, it is hard for a candidate to really make a big enough mistake to actually swing opinion too strongly to his opponent. >>
cannot say it is not constitutional, i cannot afford it. michael melina a fascinating case. he is a glass cutter from redding, mass., working as grandparents firm. they only had a few employees, and typically, they will have somebody that works outside of the small business provide the coverage. if your husband is employed by a corporation, you would get the health insurance for the corporation. the small glass cutting firm did not provide health insurance. michael went to the state and said he had been on the health insurance connector, which was this new agency formed for people like him. if you do not get insurance through your company, you do not qualify for government programs. you could go on to the connector, which is like a shopping mall for various insurance programs. he said i have a wife that is out of work, a mortgage, condominium fees, a car payment -- he detailed his expenses, and he said he cannot afford the six ended $28 for my monthly health- insurance -- $620 for my monthly health-insurance premium. if the state said we think you can, and you should buy this program or t
factory too far where you're like okay, we get it, michael dukakis and the pledge. this indian thing worked for him, this native-american thing worked for him for a short while. but he stayed on it. almost as if he has nothing else to attack her on and now this asbestos thing? he looks a little desperate right now. >> well, he probably is a little desperate right now. i'm not talking about the poll numbers, talking about the fact that president obama who is going to hammer mitt romney in his home state beat him by 20 points, that's a mathematical tough hill to climb. -- >> unless barack obama has a couple more bad debates. >> massachusetts won't matter. >> well, the margin does matter though. >> scott brown, clearly, apparently has not taken enough advantage of, is people sense that perhaps we should have one republican in washington. let's just send one republican in washington just to balance the scales, to keep people honest. this, you know, talking about elizabeth warren's indian heritage or whatever it is. >> come on. >> it doesn't register to people. it does not register. >> th

. maybe 15 years ago by michael mori interviewed in "60 minutes." this is a remarkable show available online. michael wallis pointed finger at him and said your dick tater. he said several times. he laughed and he said oh, well. but chinese, that's a shame. how could you not react? after many years people so his approach actually was -- actually make michael wallis seemed embarrassed. you do same thing with pushing king and wen jiabao. they will react first on. so we do need to know this kind of mindset, this experience. so that's why harry kissinger, you said early on it so important, defining moment, look for the previous expense, really shape their behavior. there's a tremendous plume of cooperation. spent dr. kissinger, i think he said expressed in the cultural revolution hardened this generation of leaders. how does that merit out and how they view both domestic policies in china and the relationship to the world? or is that not really a key factor of how they see their role? >> we cannot really know yet how they will conduct themselves in foreign policy, because they are not yet
politic, the influence of those florida growers might have played just a small role. michael isakoff is nbc's national investigative correspondent. it's an election year and hearing about issues like this, oh, favoritism of this front for florida. favoritism on that front for ohio. it shouldn't come as a shock and yet, we see it play out every year. four years, excuse me. >> this is a fascinating look about how to use the levers of power of incumbency to help yourself in an election season. in june, as you mentioned, the florida tomato growers filed this petition with the commerce department to tear up a 16-year-old trade agreement with mexico. they say they're being devastateded by the import of mexican tomatoes into the united states. lower costs than florida and then, the politics gets ratcheted up. they get letters talking about the precarious situation of florida tomato growers. senator bill nelson, up for re-election, writes a letter to the commerce department. i believe time is of the essence in this matter. he says he's talking about the growing season, but you get an electio
temperature was 90 degrees. michael berkshire administers green roof projects for the city. >> rooftops are one of the last kind of frontiers that you can really look at, and it's a significant amount of space. >> sreenivasan: berkshire says the plants on green roofs soak up heat, and keep both the buildings underneath and the air above them cooler. that, in turn, reduces the cost of air conditioning. this roof saves city hall about $3,600 a year. chicago has 359 green roofs covering almost five and a half million square feet. that's more than any other city in north america. millenium park is the largest green roof in the world at 25 acres, covering parking garages, a railway, and an opera house. >> what's interesting about a green roof is that it provides the benefits that can help mitigate in terms of, you know, keeping the temperatures lower. but then in terms of the adaptation, we're going to see more rainfall and heavier rainfall events. o the more rainfall you can absorb on-site, the less were going to overburden that combined storm sewer system. so a green roof not only helps re

there but the race could be more competitive than it looks with still more than a month some go. michael coleman is the washington bureau chief for the albuquerque journal. your sense of things was that the race was closer. do you feel that way now? >> i do feel that way the national polls have had the race as much as 10, 14 points. we had a poll that showed the race 5 points a couple of weeks ago. it will be interesting to see what happens in the next 30 days. you hit the nail on the head when you said romney's performance among hispanic voters in new mexico will be absolutely critical. jenna: anything in the debate you think will particularly resonate with the residents of new mexico and maybe even that voting block? >> one of the things that i thought was effective for mitt romney in that debate was that he performed well obviously, and secondly people in new mexico haven't seen much of mitt romney he's a little bit of an enigma to us. based on some of the characterizations so far he was seen as gaffe-prone and elitist. he didn't make any major gaffes and he was compassionate at times. i thin
with this group of voters, it was george h.w. bush. and he just barely eked out a 1% lead over michael dukakis. this has been a difficult voting bloc with republicans. >> sure has been. i don't think the romney campaign has expectations of being even with the president among women voters on election day. i think they would be thrilled to be within a handful of points because they can make gains elsewhere. if he is anywhere close to even, that is big win and i think likely means romney victory on november 6th. martha: you know, certainly would tend to substantiate the romney argument that women voters are just like other people. women are just like other people, news flash and they are interested in the economy and when you look at, you know the folks that were out there during the democratic convention, sandra flush and a lot of -- fluke, specific issues on abortion and like, it would appear after this last debate we know what resonates more solidly with women? >> i think that is exactly right. all along we looked at the election may have started out with a referendum on president obama's poli

quote from 1990. michael jordan was asked to support a democratic candidate for senate, declined at the time saying republicans buy shoes, too. currently the owner of the charlotte bobcats and raises money for president obama. i don't think he's all that concerned at this point in his life and career that people will alienate him because of his political choices. >> back in the day, he was selling a lot of shoes. maybe that was the reason for that comment. a.j. hammer, thanks so much. he will be back with us in the next hour for more showbiz headlines. >>> the man behind the viral individu video sits down to talk about his breakdown and hospitalization. >>> one credit card company is paying out hundreds of dollars to each of its card holders. it's not because they racked up a bunch of reward points.
